Review for The Ceo’s Scandalous Affair: Harlequin Manga

Review for The Ceo’s Scandalous Affair: Harlequin Manga

I received this manga from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

Oh my at this cover! The faces are a bit off, but I do like the sparks that fly between these characters. A secretary and her boss relationship, mmm this could go many ways. Ending up in romance or ending in tragedy. Either way, this is Harlequin, there would be drama (and from the start there is a secret past, oh!). 😛

Um, I understand that you are muddy and wet, but to use your boss his shower? Without him knowing? Um. Um. Um…. Why?

And dude, Anna is still very pretty and a beauty. Just because she dresses sombrely, has her hair up, and all that, doesn’t mean she is not beautiful. 😐 Urgh. The same happens later when Anna shows up in a dress with her hair loose. Everyone is commenting on how beautiful she is and how she is totally different? Really? Am I the one who is blind? I don’t see much of a change, and Anna is always gorgeous. No matter what she wears.

The secret is not out yet, but we finally get a glimpse in what happened in her past and why she is hiding. I am not too sure how I feel about our girl now. I know, I know terrible for me to judge her, and maybe there is more to it, but I don’t like people who cheat/deceive. Ah, we find out more about them, mm, from what I could gather now it is not that she deceived someone, but that someone was deceiving her. Weird.

They finally had the talk. They are clearly attracted to each other, and I am happy to see that they are now talking about things. Anna wants to keep her job, she can’t do that if she gets a relationship with Parker. Parker is readily suggesting that he would help her out with another job, but she is not budging. I am glad he respected her opinion.

Oh good grief. I know Anna is suspicious, but really? You don’t even think any further than that? You aren’t even going to find more proof? You are just going to blame her? sighs And then it is all solved so easily that it made me groan.

“Work is very important to me… but I may like your kisses more.” OK, not the right moment, I am still not happy about the whole spy thing, but I was also swooning and delighted that they are finally taking it a step further. Also, no, I don’t see this as a spoiler. Anyone who has read a harlequin (manga) knows that the characters will always end up together.

sighsDRAAMMMMMAAAAAAAAA. Of course he immediately assumes, of course he immediately gets angry. Thankfully, she was able to put in her word, that is a change from several other Harlequin Manga I read.

The ending was a bit rushed, especially the romance part, but I am still happy with it. Still happy that these two got their happy ending (again not a spoiler, these Harlequin Manga are pretty much cookie cut and all have the same Happily Ever After Ending).

I did have fun reading this one, and I do love the art style (although Anna’s hair could use some more work).
